normally, when you run a process it is linked to  your login terminal and login shell. When you logout, the system sends kill signal to all processes linked to the login shell which results in terminating them.

The nohup command will disassociate the process from the login shell and hence when logout will not receive such kill signal and will continue to run after the logout. The & will put it in background.
